*So I just wanted to write a blog in addition to my skin care video, just in case you wanted a more detailed step-by-step how-to. Or if you forget the steps, you can have a choice of reading it on text (book mark this page or subscriber to the blog!~) or watching it in video format. By the way, this blog post is going to be lengthy and detailed. This will probably the most lengthy one I will ever write. I think it's definitely worth writing about and answering all the questions I was asked :) Feel free to ask me anything.

If you wear makeup on a daily basis like me, you better have a solid kick-ass skin-care routine--saying this in the most tough love-loving way. But seriously, you HAVE to make sure you throughly remove all your makeup before you go to bed. When you sleep, that's when your skin is really doing it's THANNNG. (your skin is having a party when you sleep--no really it is. this is the time when your skin is the most active in repairing or damaging). All that makeup is sinking into your pores while you are sleeping. This is a huge no-no and will cause wrinkles, acne, and clogged pores. Doesn't sound too attractive, eh? If you're too tired to do any of the skincare steps below, just remove your makeup.. AT LEAST! If you skip this step, then the rest of the skincare routine is just useless


(pssst.. I purchased it on Amazon.. found it was the cheapest since I through these like water!) direct link: http://goo.gl/rwTLDT

-- This stuff is fricken amazing. I used to use a cleansing oil to remove my makeup. Man, never going back to those days. 

Why it's amazing? --

  • This stuff takes off even the most stubborn waterproofeyeliner. 
  • Non-oily. When I used to use my cleansing oil, I would feel icky after. You seriously feel refreshed after using this remover.
  • Gentle on your eyes. Some makeup remover can be quite harsh on your skin. You really need to be careful when picking a makeup remover. It can cause more damage in the long run. I went through 2 bottles of these babies, and I would highly recommend it!

I bought mine for about $170 because I got the original one that makes a "beep" noise, But I would tell people to save the money and get the clarisonic mia which is the exact same thing without the "beeping noise".

DISCLAIMER!


  • do not have perfect skin and in no way I am claiming I do by putting out this video. But I can say that my skin improved DRAMATICALLY after having a solid routine. I wasn't naturally blessed with great skin, and I do have to put the extra time to keep it in check. 
  • Please do not use this skincare routine if you are suffering from acne. I will do a separate video on how I got rid of my acne. But I repeat please DO NOT use this routine if you have severe acne because it can make it worse. There's a different skin care routine you have to do to first to cure your acne. After you cure your acne, THIS skin routine is excellent to heal your acne scars, dryness, wrinkles, and dullness of skin. 
  • What's my skin-type? -- I have extremely oily skin. We can cook frenchfries on it. Lol keeping. I like to make fun of my short-comings. The products I used in this skincare routine video are great for oily skin. But essentially, it's great for any skin-type! I'll explain why the products are great for oily skin down below. 
  • My skin care history-- I suffered from horrible acne since I was  in 6th grade--yes. 6th grade. "whaaat? kids that young can get acne? you must have been a freak" Yes, I did. I was constantly called pizza face and was bullied throughout 6th-Junior high for my horrible skin. So don't worry, there's hope for everyone! You just need to be mindful and start taking care of your skin/ and be conscious of what you eat/drink. 
  • As much as I love makeup, I believe that a good skincare routine is CRUCIAL. After improving my skin texture, my makeup seriously looks 2x better and I need far less makeup than before. I also do not wear heavy foundation on a daily basis--no matter how bad my skin is. I also give my skin a break and do not wear any makeup at all at least 3 times a week--except for eyeliner because people usually think I'm sleeping if I don't wear it. :/ 

STEP #1: Remove all makeup. 

*FYI: I got tons of emails on where you can purchase these products mentioned, I normally got it from my local beauty store .. but I realized they jacked up the price like crazy -____- compared to places like Amazon. Now I research and buy it through places like Amazon or other beauty websites. I'll put all the hyperlinks to all the products which has reliable reviews/sellers + best prices. (Try to stay away from websites like Ebay when buying beauty products though. I'll explain more in another post) 

-- This stuff is fricken amazing. I used to use a cleansing oil to remove my makeup. Man, never going back to those days. 

Just grab a cotton ball and soak it into this blue goodness. Btw, the blue bottom is for oily skin! :D

You can get the white bottle one if you have dry skin :) 

 


STEP #2: Gently wash your face with a cleanser.

Make sure you find a good cleanser. However, it's recommended to switch up your cleanser after 3 months. The reason being that your skin starts getting used to the products and as a result, you stop getting the full benefits and effectiveness of it. I usually keep two different cleansers in stock and go back and forth between those two. I use the O HUI cleanser && I love it so much. I tried almost every cleansing cream there is on the block, yet I keep coming back to this one. 

I also go back and forth with "The history of Whoo" Cleanser, which is another amazing Korean cleansing cream. This one is better for very oily skin. My face is glowing every time I wash my face with these cleansers. Been using it for over 2 years now. 


Step #3:  Exfoliate by using a cleansing brush. 

**Use about 2-3 times a week! 

highly recommend the clarisonic. I can confidently say that it has made a DRAMATICCC difference to my skin. I use this twice a week and it removes any dull skin-cells, deep cleanses my pores, and smooths my overall skin texture. I have been using this baby for 6 years now. Probably one of the best skin-care investments ever. Make sure you replace the brush every 3 months though. There's a lot of nooks and crannies building up in thurrr~

 


 Step#4 : Use a face mask 2-3 times a week.

I love to relax and pamper myself with a refreshing face mask 2-3 times a week. Especially when I feel like my face is dull, it instantly brightens my face after one of these babies. My fav. face masks are from Sooae. 

I usually buy the ones in the pack since it's a lot cheaper than buying it individually on amazon --> http://goo.gl/kaSCZp)


Step #5 (Optional): Use a eye mask 2-3 a week for 
them dark circles & bags. 

I used SOO AE's dark circles mask. --> However, they don't seem to have these online anywhere. I currently use Petitfree EGF Eye Patch  which is the exact same thing. 

 Love this stuff. Definitely improved my bags! So refreshing as well! ❤︎


Step #6: Lightly dab a eye cream with your ring finger every night

I use the sample O HUI eye cream  because the full size is expensive but here's the link if anyone wants to invest in it. --> Age Recovery O HUI eye cream

Seriously, is an amazing eye cream and slowly got rid of my dark eye bags. Please note that the OHUI is expensive but it's probably one of the best & advanced Korean skincare line. You get what you pay for, you know? I see a 100% difference from when I use cheap skincare products versus quality ones. I think if you want to splurge on a beauty product, I would always suggest a good skincare line. You'll thank yourself 10 years later!


Step #7:Lightly pat/dab a skin softener. 

What is a skin softener? -- Think of it as product that opens your pores. It preps your face for the moisturizers in the next steps. This allows your skin to absorb and get the maximum benefits of the next products used.

O HUI Skin Softener


 Step #8:Use patting motion to apply emulsion onto face.

Emulsion is a light moisturizer. This is water based, so it's great for oily skin. Does not feel greasy at all after application (unlike a lot of lotions I tried). It's refreshing and does wonders to your skin!

I currently use this O HUI  emulsion since this one doesn't seem available anymore. Same effect :) 


Step #9:Use patting motion to apply night cream onto face.

Just a pea-size will do. This will transform your skin throughout the night. Every time I wake up, my face feels so moist and dewy thanks to this little jar of heaven right here.

I also currently use the  O HUI White Extreme Cellshine Magic Cream since I used up this set several times.  

 

 


Night-time skin care.. done!
